Wind

This morning as I watched the trees in my yard and across the street, I made an interesting discovery, so interesting I felt I must share it with you!

I noticed that the branches of the trees within my field of vision were moving rapidly.  This movement was not confined to one type of tree, but was common to the evergreen pines and junipers and also to the partially-leafed deciduous trees.

While the tree branches were moving rapidly, I stepped out onto the porch and discovered the wind was blowing.  A strong breeze was coming from the direction of the trees just across the street from my house.

I went back inside and continued watching off and on for the next few minutes.  From time to time the branches on the trees slowed their movement and even stopped briefly.  I stepped out on the porch again and discovered that when the movement of the tree branches slowed or stopped, the wind decreased significantly and at one point even stopped altogether.

I repeated this observation several times and was able to determine that when the tree branches moved rapidly, a strong wind came from the direction of the trees.  When the tree branches slowed or stopped their movement, the wind decreased significantly or even stopped.

Therefore, I have concluded, based entirely on scientific observation and careful reasoning, that wind is caused by the movement of tree branches.

Thanks for reading.  I hope this has been helpful to you.

    One night I went outside and looked up and saw many stars. In a day or two passing I went outside again, it was clear and nighttime. I looked up to see the many stars and there were none. For observation, there had fallen from the sky. I was much glad when the stars were put back in their place. I think partially-leafed deciduous trees make as much breeze and full evergreens.

    I work with a guy…fellow engineer…JASON…we have noticed wind..and tree branches
    movement…INDEPENDENT of your observations on the same subject…Have arrived
    at the SAME CONCLUSION….THE movement of tree branches causes the wind…

    THEN IT MUST BE TRUE !!!
